But little hsd been douu so far and

The resolution was disaqreod to ,

Mr. Forney , of Alabama , who lies

iriation bill , wanted to go on with it ,
> ut he waa antagonized by gentlemen
who wanted to consider private busi-
ess.
The private calendar is so large
hat unless the hour N which private
ills are entitled are devoted to it ,
much important legislation must bo
efcrrcd. As it is , not a tithe of what
a on the calendar can be pasted.
The house decided to proceed with
be private calendar , and accordingly
went into committe6"t > f the whole.
The house was engaged all the
fternoon in iho consideraion of pri-
ate bills , the majority of which were
or pensions. Fifteen bills were dis-
meed of , and an effort waa made to
idjonrn over till Monday , but was
oted down by a largo majority , so

NFW YORK. December 17 10 p.
m. The following are abstracts from
the letter of Gen. Sherman to
William Scott , of this city , in regard
to the recommendation in the presi
dent's message to make Gen. Grant
captain-general :
"When Grant was nominated for
preaident the first time , ho volunteer
ed to me theopioion that whenhisterm
was out he would not desire to regain
command of the army , an it would be
unjust I have never heard him say
a word to indicate a change in that
opinion , and I do not baliovo he or
his friends suggested to the president
the idea of the captain generalcy or of
regaining a pi see on the army retired
list. There is no reason why presi
dents may be retired the same as
members of the supreme court. The
army service is embarrassed already
with too much rank for our .small
army. "
